17113 Tuesday March 14, 2017; in this case the union argued that the Postal Service should had granted administrative leave to all eligible employees on tour three for Tuesday March 14, 2017. Background; the Postal Service granted administrative leave to all employees between the hours of 12 midnight through 4pm on Tuesday March 14th; however, the union argued that administrative leave should had extended past 4pm due to the storms byproduct. Apparently, the arbitrator disagreed and contended that the Union did not prove that a community disaster occurred at or after 4pm on March 14.
In this case the Postal Service charged the Grievant with CAWOL- Continuous Absence without Leave for a period of time. The Service had argued that several three day letters were sent to the Grievant asking for documentation to support her absence and/or report back to work; however, there was no reply, in addition to no-call. The case was heard at arbitration in front of Arbitrator Frank Giordano. The union presented the case arguing that the Grievant should not have been CAWOL and there are mitigating factors that require this arbitrator to reinstate. Unfortunately, the arbitrator ruled against us in what I believe is a poor decision.
